Evaluation, the Language Arts, and the Student.
A quality evaluation program is needed to determine student progress in the language arts. Evaluation procedures emphasized should appraise in terms of stated objectives. A variety of procedures should be used since no approach is perfect. Approaches include: instructor observation of student progress; completion of checklists or rating scales; journal entries written periodically on each learner; and instructor-developed tests. True-false tests are not recommended due to the possibility of a student's guessing many correct responses. Standards used to evaluate student progress should possess clarity and meaning for the learner. An observation made or test given should also possess the length necessary to determine what students have learned that is relevant and salient. (RS)
